We recently announced that the firm is committed to publish its plans during 2022 for how the firm will achieve net zero, and further committed to achieve net zero status by 2030, twenty years before the Government’s proposed 2050 deadline.
We are reducing our paper usage substantially, already operating paper-lite, with targets to become virtually paperless by 2025.
We are a founding member of the Legal Sustainability Alliance and accredited to ISO14001, to monitor and manage our impact on the environment.
We have joined the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance to reduce the environmental impact on early talent recruitment.
We recycle all possible materials. We encourage our teams to minimise travel, and have put in place the technology to make this possible. We encourage and incentivise use of bikes to work, and are investigating the installation of electric charging points in our car parks.
And we will ensure that we learn from the recent past – a reduction in printing, travel, commuting and electricity use as a result of home working during the pandemic – to create an ongoing flexible working pattern which maintains and secures this into the future.
